Amentum Awarded $70M Hypersonics R&D Contract to Improve Strategic Missions

Amentum has been awarded a five-year contract with a maximum value of $70 million to support the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane (NSWC Crane) Strategic Systems Hardware Division (GXW) to modify existing and develop new Ground Support Equipment (GSE) for handling and transporting Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs), flight vehicles, Common Support Equipment (CSE), and launch platforms. Amentum was awarded this contract through the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoDIAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the DTIC repository and the R&D and S&T community.

“We are extremely pleased to continue to provide cutting-edge solutions leveraging our expertise in technology and engineering modernization to serve as an industry partner for the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane, enabling new capabilities to protect our national security,” said Jill Bruning, President of Amentum’s Engineering, Science, and Technology Group.

Under this contract, Amentum will perform R&D, analysis, testing, technology transfer, and systems engineering to assess and enhance strategic missions focused on hypersonics, undersea sensors, advanced materials, and strategic missions areas. This includes hardware for launch, boost, flight, guidance, undersea detection, and reentry systems, as well as systems and components that communicate or input data into those systems. Amentum will identify critical enabling technologies; assess a technology’s suitability for specific applications and develop new approaches and opportunities for technology transfer and integration to keep pace with continually emerging and evolving threats. This will drive continued technological superiority by incorporating quick-reaction analysis and rapid engineering development principles into related DoD hypersonics and strategic missions’ initiatives.
